The Demand for a King

► Hear “The Demand for a King”
Sermon by The Reverend Junchol Lee, March 19, 2017
Scripture readings: 1 Samuel 8:1-22, Luke 7:31-35

Historically speaking, it was a natural progression that the Israelites desired to transform from a tribal alliance into a kingdom. Yet, both Samuel and God reacted with strong emotions, stressing that they were rejected by the Israelites. We explore what it means to believe and follow the teachings of God, and the difference between rational faith and blind faith.
